The mind of the upper-class Times: We make no bones about it.
We regard the New York Times' page A3 (print editions only) as the most instructive page in all of American journalism. It's where you go to marvel at the (upper-class) mind of the (upper-class) Times, and perhaps at the newspaper's readers.
Today's A3 was especially rich. We'll plan to tell you why tomorrow. For homework, you should read this profile of Marla Maples from yesterday's paper. It was written by Hilary Howard and of course includes plenty of photos.
This isn't a criticism of Maples. It's a criticism of the mind of the Times. On this morning's page A3, that perhaps slightly vapid upper-class mind continued on from there.
